LLIS Best Practice: Use of Amateur Radio Operators to Augment Emergency Communications: Equipment [open pdf - 55KB]
"Amateur radio operators own their own equipment, which, when they are activated in an emergency, significantly reduces costs to EMAs [Emergency Management Agencies]. However, it can be time-consuming to collect and transport this equipment to an EOC [emergency operations center] or incident site. By purchasing and prepositioning vital equipment in agency facilities, EMAs can accelerate amateur radio operators' assistance in emergencies."
